Questions related to Health Information Management
It is glaring that Medical Data collection in healthcare allows health systems to create holistic views of patients, personalize treatments, advance treatment methods, improve communication between doctors and patients, and enhance health outcomes.
Inconsistent medical data have grave effects on proper planning of health care system. How can the problems of inconsistency in medical data be tackled, in various health institutions?
The rate at which health information managers are being shabbily treated among health care system in the developing world health care system, has created a lot of low esteem personality among health care workers.
Health Information Managers plays vital roles in the development of healthcare system, and are meant to be given equal recognition as their counterparts.
What model do you recommend for the Acceptance of Hospital Intelligence Management System (HIMS) Technology? (Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), Extension of TAM (ETAM), Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT)) and etc?
I'm looking for a good quality, WoS or Scopus journals that took a relatively short time for acceptance and publication in the field of health informatics and multidisciplinary journals as well.
Thanks in advance
If some one knows about the procedure for transition from one standards to another, this we are asking regarding clinical laboratory standards.
There is a number of the formulas for calculation of the cost-effectiveness of the projects, novel treatment modalities, surgery, drugs etc.
But how to calculate the cost-effectiveness of the diagnostic questionnaire?
How to retrieve the cost of analyses from the countries with the system of Health insurance? Should I take into account interests of the insurance companies?
Thank you all in advance for your answers.
This is a question that no Nurse or Regulatory Inspector has ever been able to answer in spite of the fact that the use of probability for single event management is a complete nonsense.
The responses to date to this question are best described as varying degrees of hostility, declarations that it is integral to evidenced based care practice and emphatic disinterest in addressing this gross misuse of probability.
This silliness would be laughable if the reality of this practice was not so serious for patient care and the vast waste of organisational resources that it is responsible for.
Worryingly, this misuse of probability is being enshrined in Regulatory Standards e.g. the Health Information Quality Authority in Ireland requires care providers to use assessment formats so that the probability of each resident / patient in regard to falls can be predicted and measures put in place to prevent and or reduce the chance of a fall happening.
I am not an expert, my competency in statistics is limited to three years of Economic and Social statistics as minors within my BSc Joint Honours majors of Sociology and Social & Economic History but that is sufficient to understand these basic principles:
PROBABILITY: the following are gross misuses:
a) Trying to predict 'when' - especially low-occurrence high impact events
b) Using the past to manage / predict a future
This misuse of probability is exacerbated by a demonstrable lack of understanding of the difference between an INDICATOR and a MEASURE.
In 2013 N.I.C.E. issued guidance that nurses should not use assessment tools that purport to measure (e.g. High, Medium, Low Risk) patient's probability of experiencing an event (in this case falls); guidance that is equally valid for hospitals and care homes.
Yet the daily norm for thousands of nurses in Public (e.g. NHS) organisations and Private care homes is spending huge amounts of time at a desk completing predictive assessments rather than in hands-on patient care.
A 65-year-old male patient presents with right sided weakness of one day duration. He is diabetic on oral hypoglycemic agents. On examination, his BP is 150/90 mm Hg; pulse 104/minute and his right upper and lower limbs are weak III/V. reflexes are normal with up-going right planter reflex. Brain CT showed ischemic stroke. He is a tourist and wishes to travel back home as soon as possible.
Is there any method for assessment of learning environment in hospital for non clinical purposes like health information management,etc?
health information management technician have mentor ship in hospital. it is in medical category but non clinical.
I am wondering about any UK hospital's process mining techniques like discovery, conformance, and/or enhancement to study their processes.
I am looking for a survey paper related to mobile health security and privacy. If someone happened to read some survey papers related to this topic, please recommend them to me:) Any survey paper related to this field is OK. This is appreciated, thank you!
Health Literacy is defined as the ability to read and unerstand basic medical
and health information. According to several sources more than one third of the population in North America has no health / medical literacy. The outcomes are estimated at more than 100 bilion USD for the health care sector with additional
negative cosequences like : innability to understand inform concern documents,
innability to access and use adequate and proper health/medical info on the net
etc. The next generation should aquire this through school teaching programes
- What you dear fellows think about ?
Are there any documented advantages/disadvantages of using the Brief Illness Perception Questionnaire (modified for diabetes) for research with young adults rather than the IPQ R-Diabetes?
I am working on using ESB to integrate the health data sources, but need to know if there has been any existing system in this regards? What is the impact and is any organization working on this?
Does anyone have experience in validating a questionnaire-based classification tool? I have undertaken content validation already but am struggling with how to test it for criterion-related and contruct validity. This is a classification system for models of care and there is no existing tool to validate it against nor are there any repeated measures within the questionnaire. Aside from using a test and retest to check for repeatability against a known model of care and having many people classify the same model to check for reproducibility, I am not sure how else to validate it. If anyone can provide some suggestions or good references I would really appreciate it.
The aim is to describe the surgery intervention in a formal - mathematical way in order to make computer optimization of the procedure to reduce the traumatic effect and the surgery time.
Let's consider the surgery for the tumor excision (cutting out).
Most obviously, the first parameters for formalization is the space coordinates within the human body. And in case of operation, we need to have an entry point and a path (set of points) for the surgical instrument (knife) to be moved along in order to reach the tumor location. Also we need to have a set of points to describe the surface of the tumor to be cut out.
At the same time, there are should be description of the critical area for the knife to be avoided during the surgery.
Would like to hear your thoughts regarding the surgery formalization.
